Several times this week I've been outside at dark trying to find a ripe tomato. This sucks!
I've been working later and that, coupled with the fact that it's getting dark earlier, makes finding ripe veggies very interesting. My kitchen garden is close to my patio so I can turn on the patio light which helps some. Tonight it was actually really dark out when I realized I had no tomato for my veggie burger. So, I used the flashlight. There I am out in the garden hunting for any big boy or roma that is red enough to eat using a flashlight that is either on its last leg or needs a new battery. I'm pretty sure I could have gotten more light from a Bic lighter.
After all that, I ended up having to cut a bunch of cherry tomatoes in half to use for my sandwich. I can't believe a couple of weeks ago I had so many tomatoes sitting around that I had to get creative and now I can't even find one for a lousy hamburger.
I actually still have quite a few green ones on the vine and all the plants have new blooms on them. I'm curious to see how long they will actually make it before it gets too cold.
